The Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) Resource for Commissioners was developed by NHS commissioners, with support from the NHS Commissioning Assembly Quality Working Group.
This resource has been designed to promote the value of technology enabled care services for patients, carers, service providers and commissioners. It explains how to commission, procure, implement and evaluate TECS solutions.
“Technologies such as telehealth, telecare, telemedicine, telecoaching and self-care apps have the potential to transform the way people engage in and control their own healthcare, empowering them to manage it in a way that is right for them”.
